As part of our ongoing commitment to adhere to the highest standards of business conduct and ethics, our employees are asked annually to review Fluor's Code of Business Conduct and Ethics to ensure their understanding of the company's commitment to integrity and ethics and to certify to their understanding and adherence to the Code. This practice also requires employees to disclose ethical concerns and actual or potential conflicts of interest for resolution.
In 2021, nearly every full-time employee of Fluor completed the Annual Ethics Certification and Disclosure training on anti-corruption, gifts and entertainment, accurate reporting, third parties and conflicts of interest.
Conflicts of Interest
All new hires and re-hires are required to disclose any conflicts of interest during the on-boarding process. Additionally, employees are asked to disclose any actual or potential conflicts of interest during the annual ethics certification process.
All disclosures are reviewed by the appropriate department (i.e., human resources, corporate compliance or the law department) and guidance is issued to employees. This process is overseen by the chief compliance officer.
Employees are not precluded from seeking elected positions provided that they disclose the matter and comply with the Code and conflicts of interest policy. Fluor does not, however, hire any current government officials as consultants, directors or employees.
Seeking Advice and Reporting Concerns
Our Core Value of Integrity provides the foundation for employees to always do what is right and to seek guidance if they are ever unsure about the right thing to do in a business situation. It is of the highest importance to Fluor that employees are empowered to readily speak up and say something when they suspect unethical behavior. Employees have access to multiple speak-up channels including their immediate supervisor, others in management, Compliance and Ethics, Human Resources, Industrial Relations, a Fluor subject matter expert or other internal investigating departments. Additionally, our company has in place the externally managed Compliance & Ethics Integrity Portal & Hotline, which employees can use to report concerns, report concerns anonymously unless prohibited by local law and seek advice from anywhere around the globe via the internet or a toll free number. Fluor will not tolerate any form of direct or indirect retaliation that arises from anyone raising a compliance or ethics concern in good faith.
Clients, partners, suppliers and subcontractors also are encouraged to report any suspected misconduct or raise any concern regarding Fluor, a Fluor employee or other representative, whether or not the concern involves the supplier or contractor, by contacting their Fluor representative, Fluor’s chief procurement officer (for suppliers and contractors) or Fluor's Compliance & Ethics Integrity Portal & Hotline.
